Warning 6471


  • Short Text: Actual or Possible Days of Attendance exceeds 200 days across multiple schools of enrollment.

  • Long Text: The total Actual or Possible Days of Attendance exceeds 200 days across multiple schools of enrollment. Do not include days of summer session attendance.


  • Business Rule Impact:
  • Calculation--Total attendance (Actual days or Possible days) summed across multiple districts or agencies > 200 days. Note -  Include only records with Primary School.
  • Logic-- (1) This is total attendance summed across multiple districts or agencies.  (2) 6470, 6471, 6472, and 6473 are mutually exclusive.  (3) Include only records with Primary School. (4) Priority 4.

  • How to Fix:
  • Remove the previous incorrectly entered value for attendance, and then check to see the number of days the student attended, excluding any potential summer school. If the student attended another school at some point, verify correct entry and exit dates for enrollment at your school, ensuring the total attendance between schools does not exceed 200 total days. Update the attendance days to the correct number, and then acknowledge the warning.
  • This often displays for PPP students enrolled in a choice school when they have been submitted for attendance by both the public and choice school. Only the choice school attendance is expected and should be sent. Public schools should send a value of zero (0) for attendance for choice PPP students. If the public school submits any value other than zero, you will receive this warning.

  • Example: District Deb receives a warning that Melissa's attendance days exceed the maximum of 200 days across any schools. It shows that Melissa attended for 221 days for the previous school year. Deb discovers that Melissa's last date of attendance counted a brief summer school session, which should not be included. Deb removes the days of the summer session, taking the days of attendance field to 185, an acceptable number to acknowledge and clear the warning.
